On Saturday June 26, 2021 at the Warinanco Park in Union County New Jersey The 2nd Annual Ride for Justice Event was taking place when The Calderon Charities of America Broadcasting Network Team decided to ride through the park to take random interviews.
While there, they noticed the event and decided to find out more about it. They had the opportunity to learn that the event was created in San Francisco California by a Cycling Club on June 20th2009 (which is considered the longest day of the year). The event was created to challenge the entire cycling community to ride and rise money in support of Racial Justice in America.
The cyclist is challenged to contribute one-dollar for every mile they ride toward the event’s GoFundMe page which supports the organization “Equal Justice Initiative”. The purpose of the event was to challenge the communities to show support not only for our communities, but also all those effected by racial injustice.
This event truly showed the communities that working alongside of our many minorities, as well as, our police offices, that it is ok to know the difference between the good and the evil within our communities.
The Calderon Charities of America Broadcasting Network Team was truly amazed at the turn out, as well as, noticing the many communities and police officers came together and made the statement that not all minorities or police officers are evil.
All races, ages, genders, and many more turned out to support the event. The cycle communities all around New Jersey were present and showed their support.
Even the Elizabeth High School Volleyball team was a huge part of the event as well.
There was food, music, dancing (ok I definitely had to dance with a few people lol),
plenty of entertainment, speakers, and even laughter.
Calderon Charities of America Broadcasting Network Team truly encourages everyone to participate and show your support towards Racial Justice in America.
The best part is that this event is nationwide.
We would love to see you out there in support for such a great cause.
